Tomb Sweeping Day

We had a day off from school this Tuesday as it was the Chinese holiday of Qingming or Tomb Sweeping Day. It's a day when families go to the burial sites of their ancestors and relatives to sweep the tombs and offer gifts in the form of tea, food and paper objects, which are usually burned. The burning of paper objects are especially interesting, the burning of "paper money" is widespread but in today's digital age it's becoming more common to burn some "paper Ipads" or "paper laptops", because after all they might not have any electronics retailer in heaven so what are they going to do what all that "paper money"?
